The Outer Banks of North Carolina is a 100-mile stretch of barrier islands dotted with pristine beaches, quaint towns and historic sites. If you love swimming, kayaking, or surfing, be sure to visit the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. To really experience local culture, explore each coastal village and sample as much food as you can along the way. (Pro tip: Try the catch of the day.) If you’re looking for a history lesson, check out Roanoke Island or the Wright Brothers National Memorial. And of course, no day is complete without watching the sunset from Jockey’s Ridge.

My husband and I were greatly impressed by the staff knowledge. Self guided tour was wonderful giving us time to explore the property and consider the lives of the USLSS a century ago.

The fresh shrimp was amazing!!! We hit shrimp happy hour at 5pm, 15 cent shrimp. It was cajun and delish! Fast service. Great views! Bring a sweatshirt or light coat if you go in the off season as it can be a little chilly. There is a live webcam where our family logged on and could see our little one dancing. Over all good place to eat! Music isn't so loud you can't hear yourself think, so that's good too!

After watching the movie "Nights in Rodanthe" several of my girlfriends and I decided we had to go and stay in the house. We stayed for 7 nights and it was magical. There is a hot tub on the deck and the house is still ocean front. My bed room was on the second floor with my bed facing the French doors to the deck that overlooks the ocean. I would set my alarm every morning for the sunrise and just have to sit up in bed to watch it come up over the ocean. If no sunrise, just lay back down and go back to sleep. My bedroom also had a private bath off of it in the tower part of the house. The house is wonderful and charming. The pier was fun to visit and I just walked out and took pictures. Parking was a little difficult at the pier, but it is walking distance from the house. The light houses and the wild horses were neat to visit. If you take the four wheel drive tour to see the horses, dress warm. The ride is cold and breezy, to say the least.

There is a charm that is just so inviting each and every time we visit Corolla. The bookstore is our favorite spot to find our next beach read and the 'lack of bustle' is always enjoyed most while biking in and out of the peaceful, sandy roads and paths. It's small, so take your time and explore it all as there is a lot to discover.

The Fort Ocracoke Monument is an interesting stop. It’s along the beautiful scenic water front and worth the time to stop and read the history.

Self-paced just off the road exhibit. Very informative and has the boats in a boat house. If you like boats and history this is a great short stop just across from the light house.
